  • Try to import the files in the new profile. This way you can prevent you data to be duplicated.
  • If you take the backup on regular time interval and if you feel that some file is lost and you are again trying to import the files then it may possible that you create a duplicate copy.
  • Importing the PST file is a one time process and if once the process completed successfully then you don't need to run the process again otherwise you will have a duplicate copy of the files. It might possible that there are duplicate copies of documents also created like duplicate emails, attachments or other connected files.

So be careful while doing this process and make sure that you don't create the duplicate copy.
